Community Update 153
Cars, music, and lots more.

Welcome

The header is a double-whammy of a collaboration between Vertiigo and Veysel Kara. It's amazing how an unfinished, unreleased feature of the game has garnered so much interest. But then it's also a frickin' car.

Anyway, Vertiigo goes on an adventure to find his own logo, and he uses an admin spawned car to get there. It's great.

There's more car stuff to come.

Here In My Car...

Cars! Even though they're not properly implemented, there was no way this blog wasn't going to be dominated by the wheeled beasts. Here's what people made with them.

Shadowfrax and Banana Duck are a silly pair, frankly way better than any of the past or present Top Gear presenters. Being likeable helps a hell of a lot. Anyway, they also found an admin willing let them spawn cars on a server--possibly by using charm, but also possibly by owning the server--and ended up using Rust as Rocket League, as well as other things.

+1 for the Partridge reference, there. Elsewhere, the Horde Server made a Nascar track.

Not to be outdone, ThatGermanGuy built a demolition derby track, modifying the rules so guns are allowed. And tanks.

We need this in the game soundtrack. It's hilariously apt.

Art

Mr.Fazzzer drew an avatar, and Mr.MichaelPL made a scene.

Once again, Pughie has taken a wide view of the game.

And Mikillding redesigned some of our guns.

Art!

A Musical Interlude

The guitar becomes an axe in the proper hands, particularly with woox2k's scripts.

By the sounds of it, Aaron Hyands has been making Rust folk songs.

Secsi has been serenading them on The Horde Server.

And here's another gun sync from Leftint.

Bard ass.

Rust IRL

Over on reddit, NoahF710 used his actual hands (and clay) to make some Rust items.

Love the addition of the LED to the furnace.

Xtab's Skin Picks

Covered in scars, thorns dangling from ragged flaps of skin, desperately in need of water, Xtab bursts into our Slack channel and tells me his favourite skins from the workshop this week, before collapsing into a coma.

"I like the Fisher Wooden Doarrrrrgh!"

He's so dramatic. He only popped out to buy some gum.

And Finally...

Snellular reimagines Rust as a turn-based RPG.

How did you find my folder of Rust prototypes? Only Gabe Newell has acce - oh, I see.

Get In Touch

Think you're working on something awesome? Tell me all about it. Share your car rides, show off a game-mode from your server, or have you done a cool thing with Code Locks and Vending Machines?

There's a dedicated forum post, or you can fish for upvotes in the Subreddit. I also shuffle around the the Steam Community, so feel free to show me to things from there. You can follow and respond to Rust on Twitter, and I'm on there as well.

I can't respond to everything, but I read every comment and take it all in.
